Brendan Taman Steps Away From The Blue Bombers Of The Canadian Football League

Brendan Taman's 10-year run with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers has ended.

The CFL team's former general manager resigned today, several weeks after being told he was being re-positioned as vice-president of player personnel to make room for Mike Kelly.

Kelly was hired as the Blue Bombers' head coach replacing Doug Berry, who was fired after Winnipeg's playoff loss to the Edmonton Eskimos last November. Kelly was expected to share the GM's duties with Taman, who first joined the Blue Bombers in 1999 as assistant GM.

“We truly are sorry to see Brendan leave after all that he has given to this organization over the years” Blue Bombers president and CEO Lyle Bauer said in a statement. “Brendan's contributions are immense however we need to respect his decision and wish him nothing but the best in the future.”

“After speaking with Brendan at length it is his desire to step away from the game at this time however that does not preclude future involvement such as Special Projects Consultant in the future if the circumstances are right”.
